Something to do this weekend:-

RAILEX 2005 Model Railway Exhibition
GOES MASSIVE

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Stoke Mandeville Stadium, Harvey Road, Aylesbury, Buckinghamshire
Saturday 28th May 10.30-5.30
Sunday 29th May 10.00-5.00

Railex is bigger, better and goes two days in 2005. Our intention is to have the best show with the best layouts, demos and traders aimed directly at the serious railway modeller, and with the emphasis on quality: just look at the list of confirmed exhibits we have below. We have moved from our traditional date in October to our new permanent date over the May Whit bank holiday weekend, so we do not clash with other large shows and can book those specialist traders that support our hobby. Pete Waterman Railway Enthusiast and Pop producer will be opening Railex on Saturday morning and be in attendance both days with his trade stand Just Like The Real Thing.

We have also moved location to the brand new Stoke Mandeville Stadium, at Harvey Road, Aylesbury (one mile from the centre of Aylesbury). The venue is directly behind Stoke Mandeville Hospital.

The venue offers superb facilities for a model railway exhibition with all exhibits and traders contained within one large hall (some 160 feet by 119 feet) that is just over 19 000 square feet of exhibition space. The extra room that this facility offers allows us to invite many very large layouts that other exhibitions just could not accommodate, in fact we have at least five layouts booked that are over 30 feet long with the largest being Bath Green Park at 65 feet long.

The whole complex is 100% disabled accessible, and is provided with a refreshment area in the entrance lobby where drinks, snacks and light lunches can be purchased. A seated balcony over looking the exhibition is available for those who wish to relax or have a break from the show at any time.

In addition to the list above we have also invited many more high quality layouts, demos and traders who have indicated that they will attend Railex 2005. We will not add them to the list above until we have had confirmation in writing. Keep looking out for updates to this page, and the model railway magazines nearer the time for further details. We have also lined up well-known modellers, who will be demonstrating various aspects of railway modelling and related topics.

Directions to the Exhibition
Stoke Mandeville Stadium is located just over one mile from Aylesbury town centre and situated directly behind Stoke Mandeville Hospital (both the hospital and stadium are within the town of Aylesbury). Click here for Map

By Car
Car parking is free. Follow road signs to Aylesbury then pick up signs for Stoke Mandeville Hospital (these are clearly marked from all major roads). Stoke Mandeville Stadium & Olympic Lodge are sign posted close to the hospital, turn by the Spar shop and High Tide fish and chips in to Harvey Road, the stadium is located at the end of this road. If using the stadium car park, please abide the rules and do not park in the disabled parking bays unless you are entitled to.

By Public Transport
If coming by train alight at Aylesbury railway station. Aylesbury is served by a fast and efficient Chiltern Railways service from London Marylebone or change at Princes Risborough if coming from the north via Birmingham Snow Hill or Banbury. Taxis are available from the station forecourt, although buses run from the adjacent bus station direct to the stadium (bus route 65) on Saturday. Alternatively use the red route bus service which goes from the bus station to the hospital every 10 minutes. From the hospital (entrance 2) though main reception to the stadium is only five minutes walk. The 324/323 bus service from High Wycombe to Aylesbury also stop by the hospital.

If you have any questions or suggestions about Railex for 2005 of subsequent years, layouts, trade, demonstrator or any aspects we might not have thought of please contact the new Exhibition Manager David Lane. We have already booked some excellent layouts for Railex 2006, but don't miss Railex 2005 - make a date in your diary now.
